Join Beth Jusino, local author of the recently published Walking to the End of the World, and Ruth Dickey, poet and Executive Director of Seattle Arts & Lectures, for an evening of conversation about their individual experiences walking the Camino de Santiago.
Beth Jusino is an award-winning writer and editor, as well as an active member of the American Pilgrims on the Camino. She and her husband Eric have spent more than 100 days walking different sections of the Camino de Santiago, the Way of St. James, in both France and Spain. When they're not on pilgrimages they live in Seattle, where Beth regularly offers talks about the Camino and teaches classes on writing, publishing, and marketing.
Ruth spent seven weeks in 2018 walking 400 miles to the field of stars of Santiago de Compostela along the Camino del Norte. By day, she is the Executive Director of Seattle Arts & Lectures (www.lectures.org), which champions the literary arts by engaging and inspiring readers and writers of all generations in the Puget Sound region. She is a voracious reader, a nonprofit capacity building nerd, an ardent fan of urban hiking, and has taught poetry workshops in soup kitchens, drop in centers and the DC Public Schools.
Explorer X will be leading a trip to Walk the Camino in autumn of 2019. More details coming soon!
